Raffaella Carrà: why was she so loved by the LGBT+ people?

Raffaella Carrà the Italian and International Gay Icon who never understood why she was so loved by the LGBT+ people. In one of her interviews she once admitted that she really did not understand why she became such a powerful and loved Gay Icon. Raffaella, died yesterday at the age of 78, since the very first appearance on tv, with a natural simplicity, was able to wreck tabus, to sing of sexual freedom, female empowerment, independence and, of gay loves, with a big smile on her face. https://www.instagram.com/p/CQ8_q5SBTM-/ Raffaella Carrà, back in 1978, on Rai1 - the equivalent of BBC1 in Italy - sang "Luca". This was a song about her love for this beautiful and stunning guy, who all of a sudden, she lost contacts with. One day - as she tells us in the song - she saw him from ...

Raffaella Carrà dies at the age of 78 – one fo the first international Italian Gay Icon  Her final goodbye

Raffaella Carrà - the international LGBT+ community has just lost one of her most loved queens. Aged 78, the most iconic International Italian Showgirl and LGBTQI supporter, left this world today 5th July 2021 4.20 pm. Her friend and ex-partner, Sergio Iapino, announced her death that arrived after a long illness that attacked her “small but always strong body” (as Iapino said). The news arrived unexpected and shocked the international showbiz panorama, leaving too many colleagues, artists and normal people in tears. A woman out of the ordinary yet endowed with unsettling simplicity, she had no children but as she always said, she had thousands of them, like the 150 thousand she helped to adopted thanks to “Amore”, an international adoption programme she sustained along her life.  http...

Måneskin on top of the world and fighting against Homophobia in Poland

Måneskin is absolutely the strongest music band of the moment, and these Italians really do it better than others ... or at least, when it comes to fight prejudice and homophobia. Damiano David and Thomas Raggi have kissed on stage in Poland in protest of rising levels of homophobia in the country, especially after all the LGBT Free Zones were created. The Italian Rock Band, who won Eurovision Song Contest 2021 against all odds, started a European tour that has seen each date to be quickly sold out, and during their concert in Poland, they launched a serious message of love, acceptance and togetherness. On their IG profile they posted the below video: https://www.instagram.com/p/CQmLgfQISg6/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link   And yes, Damiano, you are perfectly right: LOVE ...

Eurovision 2021 – First Semifinal results and reactions.

The first Semifinal of Eurovision Song Contest 2021 has just ended and we have the first 10 finalists that will join the Big 5 and The Netherlands in the Grand Final of Saturday 22nd May 2021.  So many feelings, so many emotions: we spent the whole night watching the event live from the Press Room in Rotterdam Ahoy Arena, and hey, did we have goosebumps the whole night! Two years since the last real Eurovision Song Contest (Tel Aviv 2019) and we finally had the chance to enjoy such a fantastic music show that the whole world enjoyed.  Who are the finalists? Do we agree with them all? No! Absolutely not!  Norway for example: a very weak staging; a very weak voice and we hope the back singers are paid good enough to save Tix’s voice every time he sings live on that stage; majori...

Little Mix introduces a new “boy band” in Confetti music video.

Little Mix is happy to introduce a new boy band: the trio Pez, J-Dog and Lenny participating in their latest music video, Confetti. Little Mix just came out of a very difficult time for the band after Jasy Nelson decided to leave for personal reasons, and they are now back with a new and amazing video for their latest single Confetti. Confetti is the fourth single to be released from Little Mix’s album of the same name, and the band’s first release without vocals from Jesy. The video sees the girls hitting up a nightclub and being confronted by Pez, J-Dog and Lenny, their male alter-egos, with a scene at urinals that will make history of drag-kings. Pez (Perry): "I heard you shake it once, it’s fine. You shake it more than once, you’re playing with it.”  The song features the ...

Russia’s documentary film festival forced by anti-LGBT activists to cancel film

Artdocfest, Russia’s largest documentary film festival, has been targeted by anti-LGBT activists. They had programmed Silent Voice, a documentary about a young Chechen MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighter who had to escape from Chechnya for Brussels when his brother discovered he was gay and threatened to kill him. The film was due to be screened on 5 and 6 April in Moscow. The organisers of the festival told the Novaya Gazeta newspaper that a man who identified himself only as ‘Suliman’ threatened them with ‘serious consequences’ if they did not pull the film from the festival’s line up. According to Screen International, he also told them that the film ‘violates the rights of Chechens’ as there are ‘no gays’ in Chechnya. Screen International report that the festival’s director, Ekho Mo...

Why we love Senhit – San Marino’s FREAKY queen

From her first appearance on Dusseldorf's stage in 2011 to her great return to the contest in 2020 (and then again in 2021), she's conquered our hearts with her warm smiles, her powerful voice and, let's be honest, her always different, unique and never boring outfits. We are obviously talking of the undisputed queen of San Marino (yes Valentina, 'Maybe' you have tried too many times and dropped the crown!), 'Her Freakiness' , Senhit. After an unfair non-qualification in 2011 with the beautiful pop-ballad 'Stand By' (for which, by the way, I am still crying out for revenge), she accepted to come back and 'battle', again, for one of the smallest countries in the world, that has an history whne it comes to competing in this Contest: San Marino. Let's be clear: a returning artist f...

A talented and gifted artist - we fell in love with during Season 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Rage UK -  that finally releases her first single. STAR is the title of Veronica’s debut song, and no, it is not what you would expect from a typical drag queen: she’s serving you ballad realness, with a song rich of pumping beats, comedy and emotional lyrics strongly influenced by her love for musical theatre. She said: “it is the perfect introduction to my musical world. I think a lot of people will relate to this song, coming from small towns and villages and finding their place and acceptance in a big city. […] It's a big musical theatre-style pop song that provides the perfect introduction to my musical world." 'Stars' is written and produced by Ian Masterson (alongside Hayley Sanderson) who has ...
